The Disney Cruise Line has a problem. They have a lot of loyal repeat customers, but their offerings are thin when it comes to different ports of call. This will be solved in 2011 when the Disney Dream arrives in Florida to bring the fleet up to three ships. That will free Disney to move one ship, the Disney Wonder, to the west coast, and the other, the Disney Magic, to Europe.
The Wonder’s visit to Alaska is a first for Disney and the ship will require a few upgrades to handle the different weather. But it will also offer some expansive views and new excursions to explore. I predict this will be quite popular.
The Mediterranean itineraries the Disney Cruise line did during their previous trip to Europe were also a big hit. It should be even better now that they have some experience under their belt.

Traveling with your potty trained child has always been easy on the Disney Cruise Line. You could drop them off in the morning at one of the ship’s great programs and pick them up for dinner (or not, as often the child wanted to stay and play). DCL also had some programs for younger kids, but now they’re expanding that program to make it even easier to bring the youngest children along.
Traveling with infants and toddlers on Disney Cruise Line will soon be easier than ever thanks to a cruise industry-first service that delivers baby supplies directly to guest staterooms and a host of child-friendly offerings onboard the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder.
Beginning March 15, families preparing to sail on Disney Cruise Line with little ones will have access to an online service that allows them to order baby supplies in advance of their cruise and have them delivered to their stateroom. The new service is exclusive for Disney Cruise Line guests and provided by Babies Travel Lite, an online retailer offering more than 1,000 brand-name baby products including diapers, baby food, infant formula and specialty travel items.
